[> [> M40 Rigging -- Lawrence Killingsworth, - Friday - 10/26/07 - 11:12am

Good morning, Ben --

Ta' Ata Ori's standing rigging was upgraded/upsized a few years before I bought her. She's been in fresh water ever since and it's in pretty good shape. I'm not planning on replacing it, unless close inspection shows some wear, corrosion, etc.

I can measure the size of wire and get back to you, but I won't be visiting the marina for a few weeks.

I'm sure we'd all like to see some photos of your vessel.

I measured Ta' Ata Ori's rigging this weekend.
Here's the scoop: Main upper shrouds, lower shrouds, headstay and backstay are all 5/16" (the backstay is 1/4" after the split).
Mizzen upper shrouds and lower shrouds: 1/4".
Triatic stay: 3/16".
Hope this helps with your project.
